New to the Civil War Memory Library, 07/19

Announcement: Earlier today I learned that the University Press of Kentucky will bring Remembering The Battle of the Crater: War as Murder out in paperback next spring. I’ve been hoping for some time that they would do this and I couldn’t be more excited. I will provide additional information as it becomes available.

      Hi Jim,

      I am aware of the plagiarism scandal. That said, I have not read this particular book, but I am willing to consider it on its own merit.
